$10-million is paving 17 miles of a well used part of Century Drive. It's the often hazardous route from Bend up to Mount Bachelor. Oregon Department of Transportation spokesperson Peter Murphy says starting this week there crews will be in the area prepping for the big project. "We've got a $10 million project and it's going to re-pave about 17 miles of road. And anybody's who's been up that way knows that road takes a hit every year. Fortunately, we were able to find some funds from a Forest Service partnership. We'll be able to re-pave the critical 17 miles." The full-on construction will start in June and run through October.  Drivers can expect up to 20 minute delays at times. There will be flaggers and a pilot car guiding traffic.
